MC Construction is in the running for a host of accolades at the 2018 North West Regional Construction Awards.
The 12th annual awards ceremony takes place on Friday, July 6 at The Principal Manchester, hosted by the University of Salford’s School of the Built Environment and the Centre for Construction Innovation.
MC Construction has been shortlisted for SME of the Year and for the People Development award.
The company’s £9.5m upgrade of the Samuel Alexander Building at the University of Manchester has also earned it a place on the shortlist for Project of the Year.
The Grade II listed building on Oxford Road houses the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures and was remodelled and refurbished across all of its four wings over a two-year period.
It was the largest contract undertaken so far by MC Construction.
The scheme is also shortlisted for Sub-regional Project of the Year – Manchester, providing another chance for glory for MC Construction alongside project manager Gardiner & Theobald, architect Halliday Meecham and consulting engineers WYG.
Meanwhile, the University of Manchester is a finalist in the Client of the Year category after being nominated by MC Construction.
Another MC Construction nominee, Preston-based business management consultant Martin Brown, is shortlisted for the Outstanding Achiever Award.
Managing director David Lowe said:
‘It’s tremendously exciting to be in the running for so many accolades at this prestigious regional awards ceremony.’
‘To be shortlisted in so many categories is a reflection of the company’s success over the past 12 months and we are also delighted that the University of Manchester, a key client of the business, is a finalist along with Martin Brown, whom we also nominated.’
‘We have worked with Martin for 10 years and his advice has been integral to the success of our business and other SMEs in our industry across the north west.’
‘We are all really looking forward to the awards ceremony – it can’t come soon enough!’
